One of the last great comedians. Mr. Warmth is a pretty good watch, it's on Netflix.

2017 from Louis CK was pretty hilarious. I laughed harder than his two previous specials.

I love one of the outtakes in Casino of Don rippin on DeNiro. Also, loved the story Kevin Pollack tells about Rickles telling DeNiro "you, with the pauses and the breathing and the bullshit....just say the line!"

Those ladies are quite fetching in their 18th century costumes. Especially the one on the right.

Louis CK's monologue on SNL was pretty damn funny.

RIP Charlie Murphy. Putting aside everything else he did, he's responsible for this:

Which is damn near enough of a legacy.

ATL traffic due to the 85 overpass collapse. A trip that usually takes us 40 minutes took 2 hours and that was leaving our house at 4PM.

Patton Oswalt's post on facebook today about his wife was one of the saddest things I've ever read.

Can you post it? Also, did they ever determine what happened to her?

"It's awful, but it's not fatal.
That's the dispatch I'm sending back from exactly one year into this shadow-slog. A year ago today -- an hour from now, I'm just realizing -- I came back from dropping Alice off at school. I'd let Michelle sleep in. Got our daughter dressed and ready for school -- lunch packed, class folder in her backpack. I stopped on the way home to buy Michelle an Americano and left it on her bedside table around 9:30am. Went up to my office, did some writing, answered some e-mails, Tweeted some thoughts on Prince dying. There was an art show at Alice's school in the afternoon and my wife and I were going to go, get dragged around the room by Alice as she chattered about her artwork and the work of her classmates. Except instead I came back down into the house and the life i knew was gone.
I'm one year into this new life -- one I never even imagined, and I can imagine some pretty pessimistic and dark contingencies, some stomach-freezing "what ifs." But not this one. This one had such a flat, un-poetic immediacy. The world gazes at you like a hungry but indifferent reptile when you're widowed.
Last night I took off my wedding ring. I couldn't bear removing it since April 21st, 2016. But now it felt obscene. That anonymous poem about the man mourning his dead lover for a year and a day, for craving a kiss from her "clay cold lips." I was inviting more darkness. Removing the ring was removing the last symbol of denial of who I was now, and what my life is, and what my responsibilities are.
But it's not fatal.
I put the ring in this little box I'd had made, when Michelle and I moved out of the house we lived in together in Burbank -- first as boyfriend/girlfriend, then as fiancees, then as a married couple. When we moved into our new house I had the box made, and filled with it random trinkets and scraps of our life leading up to marriage. The first movie we went to after moving in with each other, the first movie premiere we went to, hotel keys and love notes and pictures.
Michelle brought me nothing but happiness. You see it in our faces, that picture between the two pics of the box. That was taken literally a month after we started going out. Look at us. We knew this was it.
So the ring goes with the happy stuff.
And no, I'm not making today any sort of dark ritual or painful memorial. No graveside visit. Those are for when Alice and I have something exciting to say to her. No candle lighting or ballon launching. We think of her every day -- she's still so tied into our worlds, in a way that's encouraging, and energizing. So why light a flame that will die, or release a balloon that will disappear? Michelle's gone but she wasn't the kind of soul that disappears or dies out.
I'm gonna pick Alice up at school later. She wants to go to a pet store and buy "worms that will grow into beetles." She's becoming a cool bug girl and Michelle would have thought that was hilarious (Michelle HATED insects). Then we'll go get ice cream. Or go home and play a game. I'm her dad. I want to make her days fun.
I've become friends with a lot of other people who share my tragedy. We're an informal, subtle little club. No rankings or initiation ceremonies or secret handshakes. And no, we don't "see it each other's eyes" or "sense it without saying it." We went through something that transformed us but, for the most part, we keep it together. We lost someone who made us live better in the world. It would be an insult to them not suddenly live badly in this world.
I plan things better. I'm more patient. I still sleep badly, and my weight and health need some work, but that's combat damage. There's got to be a way to fix those without being shitty to friends and strangers who are struggling with chaos. I'll try.
One year in. Another year starting. It's awful, but it's not fatal. Message received? Over and out."

there are a few pictures too.

and as to the cause of death

“We learned today the combination of drugs in Michelle’s system, along with a condition we were unaware of, proved lethal,” the actor and comedian wrote in a statement to the Associated Press, explaining that “blockages, combined with her taking the medications Adderall, Xanax and the pain medication fentanyl,” were responsible for her death.

Ugh, I cannot even imagine the pain he felt/feels.

As to the drugs in her system, she wasn't abusing anything, right? It seems the usual these days...Adderall to focus and Xanax to ease anxiety and such.
